|Chinese People Love Fireworks|
|Chinese people love fireworks like Americans love sedentary lifestyles, remote controls and sitting down. We went to Beijing for Chinese New Year (the Koreans call it Lunar New Year) which I had heard was the largest fireworks display on Earth. I love fireworks but at a certain age they do loose a bit of their wonder so I wasn’t too pumped for this part of the trip. We landed on New Year’s Day and were immediately thrown into complete firework madness. This isn’t a professional firework show, this is every single person in the city setting off thousands dollars of fireworks on every street corner in the city for 48 hours, reaching its mind blowing crescendo at midnight.|

It was ranked into the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage items in 2006. Dragon Boat Festival usually falls on the 5th day of the 5th month according to the Chinese lunar calendar. In 2011, it falls on June 6th. In celebration of the festival, Chinese people will have a three-day statutory holiday, including June 4(Saturday), June 5(Sunday) and June 6(Monday). During the festival, there are various customary activities, including eating rice dumplings, dragon boat racing, wearing incense bags and inserting the Acores and Artemisia on the doors or windows. Among those activities, dragon boat racing is ranked as the most popular one, which used to be held in order to scare the fish away and protect the body of Qu Yuan (a famous Chinese patriotic poet).

|Living a Time Experience in China|
|It's always been my dream to travel across China? And discover all the wonders of this secular cultural and heritage. That is why, a couple of weeks ago I started to plan what suppose to my life time experience in China. I would not have all the time of the world, as I only have a little longer than twp weeks to fly all the way from Brazil and then back, what would take, only flying in and out almost 4 days. At the beginning, I tried to look for a group tour or package as I am travelling on my own and tough it would be easy to get around and visit all the places without hassle. However, I could not find any package that would cover all the places I wanted to go, in the time I had to spend. Furthermore, If I had to tailor made a package for 1 person it would be far more expensive. That is why i decide to do it all on my own and travel independently. My first spot will certainly be Beijing and the Great Wall. I will be flying directly from Rio to Beijing with one stop in Paris and will arrive on the 30th May. I am planning to spend 4 days visiting all the major landmarks, including a day tour to the Great Wall. I will not miss for sure one night at the Beijing Opera. I have seen a performance in London many years ago and feel in love with this amazing spectacle. From Beijing I will fly to Xian, where I am planning to spend 2-3 days before heading to Tibet. Two attractions I have in mind in this city are seeing the terracotta warriors and circling around the entire city wall. In Xian I will take the train to Lhasa, which I am very looking forward specially because of the amazing scenery and unique experience of spending a night on a train for the first time. I am expecting to arrive in Lhasa on the 5th or 6th June, where I am joining a 7 days overland tour to Nepal. This is experience across the Himalayan Mountains, visiting all those Tibetan s palaces, monasteries and sleeping one night at the Everest base camp is promising to be one of the great highlights of my trip. I will end up my journey in China crossing out the Nepalese border and heading up to Kathmandu, where I will relax for 2-3 days before catching my plane back to Brazil, via Dubai.|
